DECEMBER 2014 – MERIT ENGINEERING RELEASES RIDER SAW:
Merit Engineering is proud to announce the release of the much-anticipated Rider Saw. The only ride-on with independent rear wheel suspension, the Rider Saw, which measures 55″H x 41″W x 60″ L, features two back wheels with independent drive motors, 14”-60” saw capacity, and a re-positionable control panel that enables drivers to cut from both the left and the right. Says Mario Ramos of Merit, “We’re really excited to release the Rider Saw. The two back wheels offer better balance and more torque, whether our customers are using a 14” or a 60” blade, and our interchangeable front end, which is totally new to the market, allows users to move easily from a groover grinder to a 4 speed gear box for cutting, using up to a 60″ blade. This product answers a huge consumer demand and supports Merit’s reputation for quality, value, and excellence.”
